president obama needs to go right now. it reminds me of the stated reason that george w. bush didn't land in new orleans right after hurricane katrina. he didn't want to get in the way of some of the cleanup. of course that disaster response didn't go as well as it looks like president obama is handling the response happening this time. but there is the danger dealing with secret service logistics at a time when regular logistics, just living every day life, becomes incredibly hard. >> i think it's worth pointing out certainly the obama campaign probably didn't imagine the extent. warmth of the words that chris christie has for the president, but mitt romney held his disaster relief event in ohio yesterday. the question that dogged him that he would not answer was about fema. take a listen. >> governor, what should fema's role be? governor, would you eliminate fema if you were president? >> well, it's either 11 or 14 times, depending on whose count you believe. the campaign released a statement saying that romney would not abolish fema but, quote, governor romney believes that states shou
of the president obama has just a one-point lead among likely voters. three new swing state polls show the president still in the lead, although with a margin that is shrinking in florida, virginia and ohio. and instead of campaigning, the president went to the red cross in washington, d.c., yesterday. >> this is a tough time for a lot of people. millions of folks all across the eastern seaboard. but america is tougher. and we're tougher because we pull together, we leave nobody behind, we make sure that we respond as a nation and remind ourselves that whenever an american is in need, all of us stand together to make sure that we're providing the help that's necessary. >> mitt romney will resume a full campaign schedule today, stumping in florida. he held a disaster relief event yesterday in ohio. >> we've got people right now that are having some hard times because of this terrible hurricane and the storm that followed it, and your generosity will make a difference. so i want to thank you. >> i want to bring in usa today's washington bureau chief susan page. maureen dowd writes this t
in three states that look like obama states or trying to get obama campaign to spend money in those states or maybe both. what is it? >> talking about three predominantly blue states won by president obama where the polls have always trended towards democrats this year. not towards mr. romney and the g.o.p. pennsylvania, minnesota, and michigan. romney's home state. in the last few days, there have been a handful of polls that the gap has narrowed and romney made ground and come within the margin of error in those states and now he has begun to advertise. these are states the obama campaign is very very confident about. david action sell rod said he would shave his mustache off if he lost any of them. that's a staches has had for 40 years. tough hurdle for mr. romney to clear in ohio. in the last 48 hours or so there have been seven polls. all of them have suggested that mr. obama is up within the margin of error by a couple of points on mitt romney. most scenarios, romney can't win without winning here in florida as well as without ohio. so, one of the schools of thought is that the romne
's strongest early voting states. there was a survey, by pew i believe, shows that obama is winning early vote by 7 points, he won is by 16 16, 4 years ago. lou: as we look at numbers, the fox polls the two men are locked up, 46% each. and that happens to be where the real clear politics poll of polls has this race. knotted up, even. with 5 days remaining before the election. your thoughts? >> well, here is the thing, momentum is with mitt romney, storm is a little bit of a bump. his numbers have been going up. and president obama's numbers down. with regard to early voting as well, democrat strategy to get as many people out to vote who are reliable voters while republican strategy to get hard to get voters, those who need that extra nudge, thret gem out first, on election day, it will be republicans with a larger pool of reliable voters to get out, democrats are using them at, i think that momentum is are mitt romney, you see the newspaper endorsement, state after state they went for obama in 08, now mitt romney n 12, you see this in florida, nation alltel graph in new hampshire, in that st
. he will run a little bit ahead of president obama in the state. he appeals to some voters that obama does not appeal to simply because he's been there along time. i think brown ends up being safe. bill nelson has survived an onslaught of more than $20 million in outside ad spending. he's running against representative connie mack. while mack has had the potential to make it real contest, he has not. nelson is running it pretty close, six. . that's our it will end up on election day,. virginia was tied for very long time. there were 6000 poles in a row that showed it at a tie. -- there were 6000 polls in a row that showed it at a tie. we did the washington post poll that showed romney leading by a much larger number of earlier this week i do and think tim kaine is ahead by 3 points. on election day, this will be really close contest. i still give tim kaine the edge, a tort allen is not dead by any means. host: if you are interested in hearing from those candidates, we have covered many of the debates in the closely contested senate races. c-span.org to find them. reid wilson, editor-i
out, those states narrowed dramatically. some were double digit leads for obama. now within 3 to 4% for obama. what states just come through. i beg you. >> dana: it's amazing thing to think somebody had a mustache for 40 years. that is a long time. his wife might not have met him. >> greg: you know what is thereunder? >> dana: i don't want to know. >> greg: tattoo. >> andrea: also had mustache for a long time. >> dana: joe trippi said he would shave his head for the same reason. >> bob: thigh are not losing those three states. if they do it's a landslide. you talk about the gallup number, today the cbs/"new york times" numbers came out. three swing states, obama leads by one. in ohio, he leads by five. in virginia, he leads by two. this momentum by romney is all concocted and the press fell for it. dais i didn't call on you but you -- >> dana: i didn't call on you but you went anyway so i'll take the last word. one poll that came out yesterday that was interest, the national public radio teamed up resurgent republic to talk about the independent voters. if we go back eight months a
1988, i think. i mean, these are states that barack obama has never trailed in. it shows just how desperate mitt romney is because he can't compete in the swing states. this is a perfect storm that hit mitt romney this week. it showed barack obama as a commander in chief. the gallup poll was knocked off. it was his best poll. it showed the two competing businesses. not only did you have chris christie out there, but you also have bob mcdonnell of west virginia, another republican surrogate, who said the obama administration's response has been incredibly fast. >> i wouldn't go that far. they came in separately and they left separately. but sometimes governors have to do what governors do and presidents have to do what presidents do. i get that. and i think for the moment, your man probably got some. john, i want to ask you, i've been reading in the newspapers -- you correct me if i'm wrong. your superpack and other republican super packs have put $4 million into pennsylvania. team obama, only $625,000. for $4 million, jonathan, you want a rate of return better than a utility execu
in the northeast. which is obama country. we expect obama to carry every state in the northeast with the exception of new hampshire. pennsylvania, believe me, pennsylvania is in play obama campaign was counting on a lot of those negative ads. people aren't going to be paying attention to them because that storm is ripping right through that state right right now. >> absolutely. >> three days of ads in pennsylvania. all of that the psychology, the money at the federal level that's going to have to be used to restore the northeast, we're talking billions and billions of dollars. it just heightens the fact we don't have enough money to upgrade our electrical grid in this country we're 40 years behind where we should be there. this smentd going to effect the election but it does make you think that 800 billion-dollar stimulus which sprinkle hurled out of airplanes and helicopters and left not a trace ended up in solyndra and other places. imagine if we had single project like highway hour picking the interstate highway system and it had been the electrical grid or burying every wire in the country und
. >> reporter: from the white house, president obama has been calling the governors of storm ravaged states and one of romney's key supporters has been praising the president's leadership. >> his cooperation has been great with fema here on the ground and our intelligence center and the cooperation from the president of the united states has been outstanding. he deserves great credit. >> reporter: while the president remains in washington, he's getting help on the campaign trail from former president bill clinton. >> i have worked very hard in this election and i'm not running for anything. >> reporter: clinton was in minnesota tuesday, a state where the race is tightening. he is expected to campaign in six battleground states for president obama before election day. tara mergener for cbs news, the white house. >>> goor romney pls to be back on the campaign trail today with a swing through florida. >>> early voting in the 2012 election was suspended for two days because of sandy. it will resume today in maryland at 8:00 a.m. and run until 9:00 p.m. and will be conducted in maryland until fr
, swing states and ohio, romney colorado. give obama ohio and new hampshire. i think the point i want to make about this map is a broader one and it's a criticism and an expression of bafflement about the romney campaign strategy. if you look at that map, to win to get to 270, they have to win virginia, florida, north carolina. got to win colorado. putting that together, pick off ohio or some combination of wisconsin and plus new hampshire, iowa, nevada. a combination there and the polls out of ohio and wisconsin, not looking good for romney. to me the issue is this. there are states on the map that could have been competitive. oregon, michigan, minnesota, pennsylvania and even maybe where obama had big margins in 2008 like 15, 16-point margins but you have to go back to 2004 to see, you know, a three-point race in minnesota. a three-point race in michigan. these are states, there's a lot of flexibility in these states. if romney with all the money he had and republicans had, outside money, if they had targeted the states early with advertising and then with field work, too, i think i
finds that president obama has a 12-point lead in the battleground states, where it matters. with a deadline. and you...rent from national. because only national lets you choose any car in the aisle... and go. you can even take a full-size or above, and still pay the mid-size price. this is awesome. [ male announcer ] yes, it is, business pro. yes, it is. go national. go like a pro. >>> i will come on "morning joe" and i will shave off my mustache of 40 years if we lose any of those three states. >> welcome back to "hardball." that was david axelrod, famous for his mustache. he's with the obama campaign, sounding very bullish on their chances, obama's chance of carrying michigan, minnesota, and of course, pennsylvania. these three states haven't been given much time or attention by the media or the money spenders until lately. that's because the romney camp and their cohorts in the super pac world announce they're now going to start advertising there. they're pouring in over 4 million bucks in pennsylvania, 2 million in michigan, and about $1 million in minnesota. the obama

's 8.2 then, i think it's a big problem for obama. >> ohio. the ever important state. there is an ad that says that obama's chrysler deal undermines u.s. workers. gm's ceo came out and said that the latest romney ad is politics at its worst this, is going to play out before voters in ohio. your thoughts on this? >> i was in ohio yesterday. ways in hamilton county, cincinnati then over in lebanon, and then, over in delaware county. goit a good taste of southwestern ohio. last time, obama carried ohio. it is rob portman's base. they're very, very proud of them. republicans told me they believe they're going to carry hamilton county maybe by 23,000 votes. that would be a swing of 50,000 votes by itself that would guarantee carrying ohio. people in lebanon and warren county very republican. tremendously enthusiastic. they're going to vote bigger than they voted last time for mccain. in delaware county it was a very rural area we were in. i couldn't find any obama voters. obama is going to be competitive. he's going to have cleveland and areas around dayton. i think ohio probably going to
. right now it's the unemployment rate is 5.7% and president obama won the state into thousand eight with 9%. the executive director of the institute -- he is joining us from manchester. let's begin with tough issues for new hampshire voters. >> before i get started, i wanted to thank c-span and congratulate them on 15 years being on the air. it has been a very new book valuable resources -- a very valuable resource. we are a swing states. four electoral votes. it sounds like a small number but if al gore had won the four votes, he would have become president. they are very important. this state right to know is a tossup. the issues are different than it would be across the country. unlike nevada, that has a higher unemployment rate. ron sommer, it was 5.2%. -- and like summer, it was 5.2%. it is the number one issue but ring home like other issues. right now, we are seeing that the candidates are coming into, particularly the president has coming into the seacoast area. towns like rochester, cities like rochester are areas that are indicative of what may happen in the election. the
battleground states for president obama before election day. >> social media may hold the key to identifying whoever smashed a muni bus in the riots following the giants world series win. how facebook is turning up the heat on this viral vandal. elizabeth. >> reporter: they're doing sound checks here at civic center plaza. as they prepare for tomorrow's big giants parade, san francisco police department have made an arrest in connection with that picture that shows the ugly side of the giants celebration on sunday. it may have something to do with a facebook campaign. the giants won the world series and a guy in a giants cap did this. >> sad. marred a great moment for us. >> reporter: jason couldn't believe a guy who supposedly is a giants fan would use what looks to be a barricade to smash a bus. >> it's pretty out there. it's pretty viral. >> reporter: the original picture was taken by the san francisco chronicle. but the owner of the red devil lounge wanted to help police catch the vandal. >> it seems like such an overt act of violence and disrespect to the city. it seemed like it was app
to be in places like michigan, minnesota and pennsylvania, states that david axelrod, the obama campaign strategist, just was on a conference call with reporters saying he bets his mustache that romney won't win any of those three states. so you look at the romney campaign spending resources in places like wisconsin, sending paul ryan to wisconsin to me does not project a campaign that thinks it's winning. they should put everything they have got into ohio. yesterday there was that quasicampaign/relief effort. they got a little burned for it because it was seen for what it was, a campaign event, but that's where they need to double down. because barack obama if he wins ohio, he could lose virginia and florida and still win. >> they have been doubling down. they spent all of this time in ohio and because of sandy spent more time in ohio. but if we look at early voting polling that is coming out of ohio and then florida, the president leads. is it the obama ground game that's really pushing them ahead? >> it's the obama ground game. ironically it's also the republican party. when i was in
obama maintaining a lead in swing states including florida, virginia and in ohio obama leads romney 50 to 45% among likely voters. he also has a huge advantage when it comes to early voters. among those who have already cast their ballots in the state, 60% of ohioans favor the president while only 34% voted for romney. meanwhile, team romney is pumping cash into states not expected to be competitive at this stage. the governor's campaign says it is seeing a resurgence in michigan, pennsylvania, and minnesota. the obama campaign is pouring cold water on that very theory saying it shows signs of a struggling romney campaign. quote, romney campaign desperate. putting up ads in pennsylvania and minnesota, prove he's struggling to find a new path to 270. that prompted the romney campaign to respond with a tweet of its own, spokesman ryan williams, quote, nervous. obama campaign says minnesota and pennsylvania aren't battlegrounds but running more than 1.1 million in ads there. the baaing and forth on twitter, ben. who to believe. i'll say this. minnesota is a blue state that bill clinton di
polls in three states that were traditionally democrats leaning obama, and president obama won in 2008: pennsylvania, minnesota, and michigan. michigan, of course, is romney's native state and polls suggest obama has the lead but mitt romney has closed the gap to the margin of error. obama campaigns scoffs at this and senior obama advisor axelrod said if they lost any of those he would shave off his mustache of 40 years but mitt romney has considered headed there a sign they think the plafield is expanding beyond the seven states that have been hotly contested and present the romney campaign opportunity to put obama on defense and have the offense ease the path to 270. very, very close, six days left, polls suggest everything is tight and no way to know who has the edge. so, no time for napping, either. >>shepard: i was hoping you got a nap while everyone else was working. >>carl: not a chance. romney is staying busy. >>shepard: thank you, carl cameron. massive gridlock around new york city, 4.3 million people use the subways and there is no subway. commuters returned to work and many
indicating they intend to put real pressure on the president in these states while the obama campaign would like to wish it's 2008. the reality is they are forced to play some defense in more states that they once believed were safer for the president. the obama campaign is taking the threat seriously enough that they sent president clinton to minnesota tuesday. they're buying airtime in all three states that romney would like to make xcompetitive. but the president's campaign, they called romney's move desperate. in a video released yesterday, the race was framed to his volunteers this way. >> we are ahead or tied in every single battleground state. that means mitt romney has to win not only the tossups but a couple states where we have a clear lead to have any chance of winning the presidency. >> messina ran through the battleground states but explicitly did not mention michigan or minnesota. he says, quote, they are throwing money at states where they never built an organization and have been losing for two years. the romney campaign and its allies' decision to go up with advertising in
about it. >> reporter: in fact, barack obama won this state handily in 2008 he was well ahead here this year until the first debate, when mitt romney gained ground. >> when mitt romney led bain, hundreds of plants, factories, and stores were shuttered. workers saw their wages slashed, their jobs sent overseas. >> look at the evidence of the last four years. under the president's policies, middle income americans have been buried. hay ear just being crushed. >> reporter: for local citizens that's meant a flood of ads, stuffed mailboxes, thousands of phone calls and knocks on their doors. by one recent count, this area is the most saturated political market in the nation. the national campaign for the presidency has come down to a battle for a relatively small number of swing counties and brown county here is one of them for the competing parties, everything now depends on organization, the so-called ground game. ben sparks is communication director for the romney campaign in wisconsin. >> the key to winning races in wisconsin is enthusiasm and voter intensity. in 2010, when republic
the state today. >> woodruff: a short time later, governor christie greeted president obama and federal emergency management agency head craig fugate in atlantic city. the trio toured the storm damag@ along the coast. >> we're going to have a lot of work to do. i don't want anybody to feel that somehow this is all going to get cleaned up overnight. we want to make sure that people have realistic expectations. but what i can promise you is that the federal government will be working as closely as possible with the state and local officials and we will not quit until this is done. and the directive i have given-- and i said this yesterday but i will repeat and i think craig and others who are working with me right now know i mean it-- we are not going to tolerate red tape, we're not going to tolerate bureaucracy. >> woodruff: meanwhile, republican mitt romney returned to the campaign trail today with three events in florida. the g.o.p. presidential nominee also mentioned the ongoing recovery in the northeast. >> this is... this is quite a time for the country, as you know. we're... we're
was with governor chris christie, correct? >> reporter: this is an unusual sight to see, to see president obama traveling around the state with governor chris christie. you have to remember that chris christie is a top surrogate for mitt romney and the keynote speaker at the republican national convention. the president had this message for voters. >> we need to make sure that everybody whose lost a loved one know they're in our thoughts and prayers. we are here for you. we will follow up to make sure you get all the help you need until you rebuild. >> reporter: so far his team has said tomorrow he will be back on the trail and making stops in wisconsin, colorado and also nevada. >> so meanwhile, mitt romney resumes campaigning in the battleground of florida. seems like he's backing off the rhetoric a little bit. >> reporter: he's trying to strike this positive tone as he gets back out there on the campaign trail. today he has three different stops in that battleground of florida. he touched on the deviation along the east coast and didn't mention the opportunity to make a pitch to voters. >> 2
survey 4-point margin of error. it is a state that the obama war room won four years ago. it needs to keep out of romney's hands to better its odds of winning re-election. for more perspective on the final seven days of the campaign, we're going to turn to one of our favorite political reporters, carla mayor nucci. it was interesting because of course if mitt romney does not win ohio, i mean, he has to win iowa. >> this has been a battleground for how long now? those early voting -- early voting. >> jennifer: it is only six electoral votes. early voting in iowa is largely in the president's favor. >> same thing in colorado. the obama campaign has that ground game down. particularly, i went door-to-door with latino canvas workers. they were just getting it out and working like crazy. i think the obama campaign has got their stuff together there. >> jennifer: so many people have made up their mind and acted upon that early. >> in nevada, another state where the latino vote is really changing the picture. >> jennife
by a look at colorado as a swing state in between fatah elections. >> president obama visited the red cross national headquarters in washington d.c. today. he spoke about recovery efforts after hurricane sandy caused widespread damage across the east coast. he was in new jersey on wednesday. this is 10 minutes. >> first of all, i want to thank gail and charlie that are on the scene doing work every time we have a disaster here in the united states of america, but obviously the red cross is doing outstanding work internationally. we want to thank them for their outstanding work. a few things i want to emphasize to the public at the top, this storm is not yet over. we have gotten briefings from the national hurricane center. it is still moving north. there are still communities that could be affected. i want to emphasize there are still risks of flooding, downed winds. very important for the public to continue to monitor the situation in your local community. listen to your state and local officials, follow instructions. the more you follow the instructions, the more they can deal with situat
obama and new jersey governor chris christie are going to tour parts of the state of new jersey tomorrow. atlantic city is obviously on the president's schedule. lorenzo langford is the mayor of atlantic city. he joins us now by phone. mayor langford, your city was truly slammed by this superstorm. the boardwalk smashed, areas flooded. fudge, give's a status update. >> well, i think we're coming out of this thing in pretty good shape, believe it or not. our biggest concern at this point is trying to restore power to 1/3 of our residents. once we're able to do that, i'm hopeful state police will open up the roads into atlantic city to allow for passage of our residents who have been moved into higher ground in shelters outside the city tone able them to come back in and return to their humble abodes. that's our biggest concern right now. >> were there any casualties? >> we had one casualty. we haven't determined as of yet whether or not it was an atlantic city resident. but one of the shelters where some of our residents had been moved to did realize a fatality, i should say. and that's t
. >> rose: so you said 75 percent likely obama will be elected? >> that's right because the states are what w call the tipping pot states tt would swing the electorial college margin he has a two or three-point lead, so it is not for sure but we can use statistics and data that just look up how often those lead translate into a win. > > rose: zero so is critical point here is that many people say paul, david brooks wrote a column. >> sure. >> as you know basically saying a poll is a paragraph of a moment in time. >> right. >> rose: period. >> uh-huh. >> rose: no prophecy from that. >> my understanding, what you say is, yes, no prophecy, but you can look and reference it to oth times and with similar circumstances existed and then project forward. >> that's right, so and the way we look at it is the confidence should increase the closer you get to election day so if you look at polls in june, and june of 1988 michael dukakis was way ahead of bush, john kerry was ahead of gore, so polls in the spring and summer aren't very useful and you might look at what kind of economic conditions are like
: christie wasn't the only gop governor in sandy's path to hear from obama. swing state governors of virginia and pennsylvania were also on a presidential call on tuesday. >> and dana joins me now. and as you said, dana, in your piece, the president will be with governor christie tomorrow in new jersey. obviously, we'll be covering that closely. there is some politicking going on kind of underneath the radar, isn't there? >> there is, of course, no surprise. in this case it's democrats that are really pushing a story that romney would slash federal disaster relief, even get rid of fema, and they're basing that primarily on a cnn debate last year during the republican primaries when romney said that the federal role should be limited during a disaster. he said that states, even the private sector should have more power. now, romney was asked multiple times today in ohio to clarify that position on fema, but he didn't answer. afterwards, romney's campaign insisted that he would not eliminate fema. that may be true, anderson, but romney's plan overall to reduce the deficit would mean cutting spe
